As the training is easy to follow, it makes you want to keep going and complete each lesson. There is also walk through videos which are very informative.

You can learn everything at your own pace and there is no timescale so there is no pressure put on you to finish things.

As everything you need is already online, there is no requirement for an app or download.

It can be overwhelming for newcomers when they see what is available to them making them panic and decide they can’t do it so they leave.

They may lose focus as there are so many members and when it comes to asking questions they be worried as to who they can ask or how to word their questions to get the correct answer, this may make them feel uneasy about asking so they don’t bother with it.

  1. Excellent review of Wealthy Affiliate! The strength of Wealthy Affiliate is their training and community support. As you commented, the getting started and affiliate bootcamp courses are extensive. These are some of the best I have seen. (I have been marketing online for 20 years and have seen lots.) The live weekly training webinars for premium members is superb. I am glad I joined. I was skeptical that Wealthy Affiliate could offer me anything that I hadn’t already learned the last 20 years. I was wrong.

    1. Thanks very much Glen for checking out my review and also for your comments. I really enjoyed doing this review and I am glad you thought it was excellent.

  2. Making money from home on the computer, is made a lot easier with WA. I host earnrecurringrevenuefromhome .com on WA, I can say that the training is priceless on WA to build a sucessfull affiliate business. Success with affiliate marketing takes time, and people must realize that success isn’t created overnight. Its great how you gave wealthy affiliate a 98/100 rating, that is where it should be. It is also great how you included that it is a 2016 review, so people know its up to date. Very helpful broken up content written in a way in which everyone can understand. Great review. Cheers!

    1. Thank you so much for your comment and I totally agree with you about how great Wealthy Affiliate are. I write as if I am actually telling someone what I think rather than getting too technical and using words that people do not understand.

  3. Great review of Wealthy Affiliate and telling it as it is. I love your review and I honestly think that WA is a great platform for beginners. When you have a product which is willing to let you have an inside look for an unlimited time, you know you’ve found a great product.

    I’ve been a member of WA for some time now and I urge everyone who’s interested in turning their passion into a business to give it a go. See it for yourself.

    1. Thanks Andrew for looking at my review and also for your great comments on it. Any feedback at all is greatly appreciated. I was very happy to hear that you liked my post.

  4. Hi there, I am thinking of starting my own blog and have read a few reviews on Wealthy Affiliate. There are a few questions that I want to ask though.

    1) Are there any upsell within the system? Because most courses do and you don’t know until you are really tied to it.

    2) You mentioned that the premium is $49 but your chart says $47. Which is which?

    3) You also mentioned about getting free websites. What kind of websites are these?


    1. Hello Cathy, I most certainly can tell you that there are no upsells within Wealthy Affiliate. The only charges are the ones that are listed below:

      FREE for the first month…
      USD19-00 for the second month…
      USD49-00 per month until cancel membership…
      It’s cheaper to pay upfront for the year… as is listed on my review.

      Very sorry for the confusion over whether it is $47 or $49 per month. It is definitely $49, the table I used to show the differences in the memberships on my review had not been updated when I started and therefore was still showing the $47. The $49 per month for Premium membership is most certainly worth it as the community of people that you will join are so helpful and friendly and the training you get to help you create your website is second to none.

      The free websites you get are with the free starter membership and these can be for any niche that you decide you want to have your website about so you can 2 websites up and running at Wealthy Affiliate without having to pay for a domain name and they are siterubix websites which belong to WA and not yourself. If you take out the Premium membership then you can make 50 free websites if you want. You can however if you wish, pay for to get your own domain and this is all explained to you in the training. My own domain is allbookstyles.com.

      If you are thinking of setting up your own blog, I would highly recommend that you use Wealthy Affiliate as it is a great community to be part of and I would be very surprised if you found it to be disappointing.

      I really hope this is a help to you Cathy and if you are not already a Wealthy Affiliate member, I along with everyone else that is part of this great community would welcome you with open arms.

      Please feel free to come and ask anymore questions if you are still unsure.


  5. Hi there Cheryl,
    This is a nice updated review of the Wealthy Affiliate program. I’ve been a member for a while now, and I’ve been enjoying a lot the lessons and the support from the community. The WA platform is the right place to start with an online business that will lead one to success.
    Thanks for sharing this post!

    1. Thanks for your comment on my Wealthy Affiliate Review and very pleased that you liked it. The support from the community and the training is great and I agree with you that the WA platform is the right place to start your online business.

  6. Hi Cheryl
    Thanks for providing your awesome review of Wealthy Affiliate.

    You have covered all of the important aspects of what makes this, the best online training platform on the planet. Where else can you go for all this training, help and support? I don’t know. The community here is top shelf. My favourite feature is the Live Chat. Just knowing I can ask a question and get an answer back within seconds, is worth the price of admission.
    You can try other programs but you will eventually end up back at Wealthy Affiliate. If you are willing to work hard good things happen. This is not get rich quick and sometimes people forget that.
    Thanks for this, really well done.

    1. Thank you so much Peter for your comments on my review of Wealthy Affiliate. This review was one that I liked doing and I agree that this is a great Community to be part of and the training is second to none. I came across WA first thankfully but would certainly not go elsewhere to see if there is anything better. I am glad that you have liked this review and for saying it is awesome.

  7. Hey there!

    I just read your article “Wealthy Affiliate’s 2016 Review”.
    You have done an incredible job laying out your information, and i found it to be very informative.

    I will certainly be signing up for the free training to check out WA!

    Do you have any idea how long it takes to get going and begin to make money from home?


    1. Hi Brendon, thanks for your comment and I am pleased to see that my review on Wealthy Affiliate impressed you and that you found it informative enough for you to be interested in signing up for the free training. I hope that when you do sign up you will then want to find out a lot more and decide to join this great community of people here by going premium. You can have your website up and running in under 30 minutes but then you really need to follow the training and not miss any of it. As for making money then it all depends as everyone is different and it really depends on what your site is about. To find out more have a look at Kyle’s Bio or my article on my journey at Wealthy Affiliate so far. I really hope that you will click on the button here in this document and come and join me along with all the others at this great community.

  8. I think nothing comes even close to wealthy affiliate. Well, at least I haven’t came across to anything that could top it! The tools and training are superb. And on top of that, the community is always there for you and ready to help you out whenever you come up with a question (even a stupid question!). So, I’d say it’s the best platform if you want to create your business online!

    1. Thanks very much for both reading my review on Wealthy Affiliate and for your comments. I have to say that I totally agree with you, the tools and training are both second to none and this is a great community to be part of. There is always someone within the community somewhere in the world that will help you with a question and even a stupid question as you put it without any hesitation at all. It most certainly is the best platform to create your online business and I am very happy to be a part of it. 

  9. Thank you for your review and it was spot on. I joined in December 2017 and i didn’t have the first clue as to how to build a website. But with the raining, tools and the awesome community, I have done what I thought was impossible. Wealthy Affiliate is beginner friendly for sure.
    Thank you for your post and for being honest and telling it like it is.

    1. Thank you very much for your comment Lee and I am pleased to see that also being a member of Wealthy Affiliate you were the same as myself when you started and have come to also love this great community and have with the help of the training and tools created your website and are proud of what you have been able to achieve. Yes I agree that Wealthy Affiliate is very beginner friendly and it is certainly one of the best things I have done by joining this great community.

  10. Thank you for the thorough review of Wealthy Affiliate. It seems to be a great platform for online beginners as the cons you mentioned are more the personality-driven cons. I mean there certainly are people who won’t find these as cons. It is just a matter of self-organization and creating some structure for your online activities to turn these cons into pros.
    However, it was not quite clear to me about Jaaxy – you mentioned that Wealthy Affiliate offer free keyword search tool and you mention that there is available also keyword tool Jaaxy. So is this the same free tool Wealthy Affiliate offers or are these two different keyword tools?

    1. Hi Arta, thank you so much for your comment and your very kind words about my review. I know what you mean about the cons though as they really are not cons as such. Thank you for talking about Jaaxy as I need to change the part because the Wealthy Affiliate free keyword tool is now within Jaaxy. However, you can sign up to use Jaaxy which is a great keyword research tool on it’s own without being a member of Wealthy Affiliate. I hope this clears that confusion up for you?
